transitions...






















If you guys follow me on instagram and twitter you may have seen me mention that I am leaving my jobs and transitioning to a new one. I posted not too long ago about disguised blessings and how fortunate I have been to have my jobs. Like I said, since moving to Provo I have been blessed with opportunities I didn't expect or see coming. I have learned so much.

I think once we recognize our blessings and we get "comfortable" our Heavenly Father likes to bring in new opportunities to keep our growth moving forward. As mentioned, I have been working as a Paralegal in the mornings and then doing Financial Aid in the afternoons. I don't think I mentioned I was doing Financial Aid at Aveda. Since working at the Aveda Institute in Provo, I have fallen in love with the people I work with, the students, and the goals alined with the company. I have always looked forward to going to work from day one at Aveda.

So when my director called me into her office and told me they thought I would be a good fit as their new full time Marketing Lead, I was shocked and ecstatic! I never saw this coming and it is such a great opportunity for me to do something I really love doing! I get to plan events and fashion shows, work with students and professionals within the Aveda network, as well as the businesses in our community, marketing online, and so so so much more!

It was extremely bittersweet for me to leave my job in the law office because I loved my boss. However, I feel like this new job was tailor-maid for me and I can't wait to explore the possibilities! I always had a vision for what my future would look like, what I would be doing... and the more I just "let go" and let God guide me, I have found a whole life I never expected for myself. I can't wait to see what God has in store for me, because I am starting to get the idea that I couldn't have dreamed it up!

  4. Oh, so excited for you! It's so great when these kinds of opportunities fall into your life unexpectedly. Sometimes I wonder if one day, teaching will become that "dream job" for me (when I'm more used to it), but I still dream about getting a job that would be a little less stressful but still just as fulfilling.

    Maybe someday.

    In the meantime, I'm stoked for you :) You'll be awesome!

    1. I really hope it does Torrie! I have always wanted to teach, and someday I know I will! I don't think there is more important work out there to be doing then that of teaching our youth :) Remember that when it gets stressful and demanding, because I know it is!!!!

  11. Congrats on the new job!! It IS hard leaving something we know so well to go to something new! It's ironic- even if the next thing is better, a part of us wants to keep what we know. Many prayers for you in this transition time of life!

  19. Um, crazy. I seriously just had the exact same thing happen. I got offered a job at a marketing and design firm up here that is completely my tailor made dream job. And I'm way sad about leaving my current job at a real estate brokerage, but I absolutely know that this new job is a direct blessing from the Lord and the opportunity I need to take. Life is so awesome. Congrats on your new job!!
